Cost of webcasting council meetings on a monthly basis

The request was successful.

Dear Gloucestershire County Council,

Could you provide documents to clarify how much, approximately, webcasting and live streaming costs the county council per month, in the hope that this information helps the city council to come to a decision about providing a similar service at its own meetings?

Yours faithfully,

Joe Kilker

Gloucestershire CC, Gloucestershire County Council

Dear Gloucestershire CC,

'Could you confirm if the question is requesting information relating to
webcasting and live streaming of committee meetings, or any others?'

As the request is specifically intended to encourage Gloucester City Council to webcast and stream its own meetings that are open to the public, I only need information about such meetings.

Yours sincerely,

Joe Kilker

Gloucestershire CC, Gloucestershire County Council

Dear Gloucestershire CC,

Thanks for the response. £11,000 a year (£900 a month) looks cheap, compared to some council expenditure. To give just one example, extending the one way system on Charles Street a few metres round the corner onto Widden St, at a cost of over £5,000, while making that corner no safer to cyclists or pedestrians.

Yours sincerely,

Joe Kilker
